Big D & Bubba

When you're sitting in the car wondering if the person in the next car over in traffic thinks that you've lost your mind because you are seemingly laughing hysterically to yourself, or sitting in the parking lot at your destination waiting for us to finish a topic, silly phone call, interview, game or conversation.....We are right there with you. And with you all the way. We know how crazy life can be....and we want to be your goofy, chubby, best radio-friend refuge from the harsh reality of being pulled 100 different directions by your spouse, kids, boss, coworkers, etc.

If you are new to the show,...um......hi! We hope to get to know you, and hope that you put up with us long enough to get to know us as well. Click on the bio's below to learn a little about each of us. If you've been a friend of ours for awhile, still click below, and see how well you know us!

By the way...because EVERYONE asks us.....We met in 1996 in Baton Rouge, La., where Big D was hosting a morning show and Bubba was hosting afternoons. We immediately hit it off, both on and off the air, and ended up pairing up to co-host a show together at the ripe old ages of 24!

Diane Ducey

Diane Ducey is a Tolono native who graduated as a Unity Rocket in the mid 80's then graduated from EIU and landed a gig at K-104 in 1989 as her first paying gig as a DJ. She's worked on various stations here in the C-U area and in Lafayette, LA where her daughter Gabrielle was born towards the end of the 90's. She came back to Illinois to do radio in Chicago at The Eighties Channel until it went to a Latin format of Viva 103.1 and was hired by Stevie Jay to be on the air as that hometown girl done good, always smiling.

Diane met Mike Anderson and fell in love, marrying in September 2001 with their honeymoon in NYC. The happy couple was do to fly out on 9/11, which proved to be challenging. Daughter Anna came in 2002 and their son Aidan in 2003. Having a couple of dogs and rabbits fill her home with fun adventures and laughter. Diane serves on many committees as an active parent in Unit 7 and volunteers frequently at St Patrick's Parish in Tolono as well as the festival called "Tolono Fun Day" the last Saturday in June. With kids involved in sports, dancing, scouts, show choir, acting and the park district programs, Diane and Mike love to see them in action. You'll often see her working the microphone at various events with charities asking her to emcee various events and benefits like 5K runs or walks.

When Diane graduated from college she started to DJ at clubs and got her own mobile DJ equipment for parties, weddings and reunions. She loves to keep the those attending in a good mood with great music choices for all. Music has always been part of her life, especially seeing LIVE shows like The Eagles, Eric Clapton and Michael Jackson! Going to see sporting events is another passion in case you see her at a game, yell out "Duce!" As the youngest of 6 kids, when everyone gathers for a family affair, there's 27 present.

Enjoying life to the fullest, if you have a comment or suggestion: bring it! Diane.Ducey@sjbroadcasting.com

Rob Stone

Nighttime is the Right Time for Rob Stone and WGKC!

Hi - First of all, thank you so much for listening to us! When you need to unwind after a hard day at work or just need some "serenity now", I've got you covered with the best New Country and All-Time favorites you will ever want to hear! Please feel free to sing along!  I  do it all the time. Don't worry, I will be sure the microphone is off so I don't broadcast my "awesome" singing voice. Hope you detected the sarcasm!

A few things about me: I love the Cubs, Blackhawks, Bears and sports in general, my grill and can have fun doing just about anything. I would love to hear from you. I must admit I am a bit old school. I used to listen to a transistor radio and eight track tapes. Remember those? So please feel free to click on the link and email me. I have been in radio for many years. When I started I had a FULL head of hair and some people actually used to play those eight track tapes! I consider it an honor to be sitting on my side of the microphone. Thanks again for turning your knob to Rob and have a great day!
